Welcome to the pages of the Central Mechanical Workshop

The Central Mechanical Workshop is a joint service group of the Stuttgart Max Planck Institutes. With our modern machinery we manufacture component parts and assemblies based on drawings, models, sketches and samples. Our main customers are the scientific departments and the scientific service groups. Our manufactured parts range in size from small sample containers to big cryostats and welded assemblage.

Smooth processing of orders is guaranteed by our qualified colleagues from manufacturing, the locksmith’s and the joiner’s shops and the material and tools distribution.

To young people we offer high-level training in industrial mechanics.

The precision mechanics workshop (Manfred Binder) is also a joint service group of both Max Planck Institutes.
